In a show of the widespread international frustration toward the administration’s recent moves on Israel, even U.S. allies Britain and France supported Monday’s resolution, which expressed “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”

While the resolution, drafted by Egypt, did not mention the United States or Mr. Trump by name, it was clear to all involved at U.N. headquarters in New York that the administrationwas the focus of Monday’s developments.

The resolution specifically sought to assert that “any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalemhave no legal effect,” according to Reuters.

    Israel says Jerusalem is the capital. Since when does a nation not have the right to name its own capital? Does this bs mean that Brittan and France will try to tell us what our capital city will be?
